THE ASCOTS - MISS HEARTBREAKER
The Ascots were a group made up of four singers, three of whom were brothers (Archie, Eddie and Jerome Powell, plus Irving Haywood) from Washington, DC. The group took some serious cues from The Impressions on this record, but the more aggressive style of drumming is pushed to the front of the mix, giving the record a very unique sound.
The harmonies are earthy and gorgeous, and the swinging and propulsive groove are gonna make you feel mighty fine.
